Since I'm living in a veritable hotbed of C&W dance, I figured I'd ask. Exactly how does it work and how do you get started? I've done pro-am in the ballroom world before, and it was fun and worthwhile, I thought. But it can be really expensive, if you want to get serious about it. My impression (correct me if I'm wrong) is that C&W is much more reasonably priced, and fun and accessible (maybe more accessible than ballroom.) Even pro-am is fairly reasonably priced, it seems. So now I'm asking. How would one go about getting connected with the world of C&W competitions? How do the comps work? What are the major, can't miss events? What are the categories of dances that are judged? In short, how does it work? Advice, anyone?
